Farmers from all across Scotland have worked very hard over the last few years to make farmers’ markets not just an attraction but to be part of the weekly shop. With their fresh local seasonal produce, this offers consumers an alternative shopping experience to the major supermarkets. Proper food at its most fresh, with some of the best quality products that only Scotland can produce. If you have concerns about the air miles your food may have clocked up, then this is the solution. To find out where the nearest Farmer’s market in your area or at the Scottish holiday house you have chosen, have a look here.

For example, at Cairndow in Argyll, between April and October, the Farmer’s market is on the fourth Saturday of the month, between 10am – 1pm. This would be the nearest venue if you chose to stay at the Cottage with Sea Views, which can sleep up to 8 adults or the larger castle accommodation, the Baronial Castle, which can sleep up to 13 adults. Both provide excellent holiday accommodation in Argyll, with great access to good quality local produce.
